Family Medicine Benchmarks - How Do You Compare?!?

Paper with words Benchmarking and charts.

The AAFP is developing a Family Medicine Career Benchmark dashboard, the first-of-its kind, providing a true transparency tool for the specialty. The dashboard will provide comprehensive compensation and job satisfaction data exclusively to AAFP/FAFP members, and will allow you to see how your income and more compares to peers in similar roles.

The dashboard allows users to filter for results by factors like:

  • Location
  • Demographics
  • Practice type 

Please take 5-10 minutes to complete the survey via the landing page, which details why family physicians need the dashboard, and includes examples of what the finished tool will look like. Don't delay, complete the survey today!

September is FASD Awareness Month

September is a meaningful time to raise awareness of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and to celebrate the strengths, talents, and victories of the estimated one in 20 Americans who have an FASD.

This year specifically is the 50th anniversary of FASD in the United States (first diagnosed in 1973), and there are important activities on the horizon. View the numerous ways to engage in advocacy, support, community, and awareness of FASD on the FASD United website, including an awareness toolkit!

Following are resources curated by the American Academy of Family Physicians to help you plan and implement FASD screening in your practice:

  • Alcohol Practice Manual: This manual provides a systems-change approach for implementing universal screening and intervention for alcohol use and other substance use – specifically, use of tobacco and marijuana – in your practice.
  • Reimbursement and Coding: A guide for practices on reimbursement and coding related to screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) services for adults who use alcohol and other substances.
  • Training and Resources Related to Alcohol and Other Substance Use: A list of resources from various organizations including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and FASD United for both clinicians and patients/families related to alcohol and other substance use during pregnancy.
